Avril Reynolds

Job Title: Manager

Joined: 2013


My name is Avril Reynolds, the Manager for Lavender Lodge. I have worked in most aspects of care for 17 years. Caring for others is my passion – I discovered I had a skill to help people come out of their shells, to enhance their lives, to move them forward to enable them to be as independent as possible and give them a voice. My approach is focused on being ‘person-centred. I am proud of what I have and can achieve. I bring this simple ethos with me and will be making positive changes to everyone’s personal well-being with the support of the staff team at Lavender Lodge. The home is staffed 24 hours a day, which includes waking nights. We work closely with other professionals such as: GPs, community nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and speech therapists to ensure that each resident’s needs are managed and met.
